Francois Zanella is a retired French coal miner with an expensive and obsessive hobby. The dude builds gigantic scale models of ships and in 1999, he decided to start building a huge model of the Royal Caribbean cruise liner, The Majesty of the Seas, in his backyard!
Well, the sections eventually outgrew his workshop and shed and -- well, you'll see. Check out his website. An incredible passion. And I still wonder why this guy spent the earlier part of his life as a coal miner when he could easily have made a decent living as a model builder.
